There is nothing

(There is deep inside, silent, without cause or reason
in core of my soul
an eternal pain and deafening sadness which
as long as I can remember
has always been there)

There is no drink that will get me drunk enough
            to forget and deaden that pain
There is no drug that will get me high enough
            to put a smile on that sadness
No vision or dream that could ever come true
            that would make this life worth the living
            or it’s ending worth the dying

Only the smile in your eyes,
            the joy in your words and
            the kiss of your lips on mine
 that makes it so.
